Thought I'd add, Grace did wonderful at daycare today. When I picked her up she seemed to be having fun, but of course she was thrilled to see me. She was in a good mood for the rest of the day, dancing and lots of walking. I think she was carefully observing her little friends, as she was a bit more expressive today than usual. Only thing is the poor thing was drooling up a storm due to her first molars coming in. I took a peek and there are actually small spots of blood where the molars are coming through. Other than the drool, you could never guess, as she was pretty happy.
Oh yes, the maedeup...
Garakji (these are so cute!): Saengjjok (This gave me loads of trouble. It's not as innocent as it looks):
Two cord saengjjok:
Sanjeongja (My sangjeongja is very poor. As you can see, one side is tighter than the other and it looks so sad.)
Maedeup is fun, but it's definitely not easy. It takes a lot of practice. My method so far has been to try each knot and see if I can get it, and then move on to the next. I'm not sure why I'm doing this. I think I just want to know that I can, in fact, do them all (well, at least the ones that are in this book). Then I will go back to the beginning, buckle down, and practice each knot until I'm pretty familiar with it. Come to think of it, this is exactly what I did with knitting and crochet.
Another note: you can buy maedeup cord on gmarket. All of this cord came to less than 20,000 won. Maedeup is a very inexpensive hobby to start.
